You don't need SQL-server for a forum, but you do need server-side
processing and some sort of database. Assuming budget is an issue for
you, you could try looking at some of these:

Actually, you don't even need the database! One can set up the forum

areas as local newsgroups and access them via PHP's extensions for NNTP. This
arrangement has the side-effect that if one wanted to link them to that of
other sites, all one has to do is remove the restrictions on transferring them (in the newserver configuration; I'm thinking of inn).


Thank you of those informations but I dont understand those terms :D
Im just kid.. Can you give me complete html sites wich I need?

PHP is a scripting language. - see www.php.net
NNTP - you're using it now! "Usenet" or newsgroups are transmitted via

NNTP.


I try to understand :) I have already done these sites

It's really hard to write a forum. Hard stuff, and lots of it. So don't
write your own, just download and install an existing one, such as
phpBB.

You'll need web hosting that supports PHP and MySQL , but that's not
hard to find.

NB - Keep the version up to date! This sort of forum software is prone
to attacks by hackers and spammers. If you run an old version with
known bugs in it, then you can get hit.

Dear sir,
By the way, you could easily host from home as long as you have a
broadband connection. If you did this, then you could use a
pre-written forum such as phpBB, which I am currently running, and
install MySQL. That would be the simplest way of doing things, but I
guess that a freewebs approach is okay. For your information, freewebs
will charge you soon, as it restricts many different aspects of its
free web pages in order to make money having people upgrade to a real
web page from them. I personally like the concept of being able to
host my own site. Barely any fees (pretty much the only fee is
registering your domain) and complete control over your site.
In any case, you will not be able to code a forum with JavaScript. You
are required to use a server-side programming language, which is most
likely to be PHP. Even if you tried, it still wouldn't work because
JavaScript doesn't have much in terms of using or accessing databases.

Dear sir,
It isn't necessarily extensive to write a forum script, but it is hard.
I have seen the concepts behind phpBB and phpNuke, and they use a
fairly simple concept of writing to and accessing a database. The
hardest part is probably just displaying the posts in their proper
order and the actual HTML programming to get the pages. Even the
schemes would be harder than just writing the database access and
writing script. I agree, nobody really should have to write another
forum program or script, so use phpBB.

I have the honor to remain your most humble and Ob't Sv't in our war
against the King.

You would need a good hardware Firewall and to limit requests to the
server, so you do not get charged for useing to much bandwidth.
But I think running something like Abyss would be ok for a test server
on your local machine for testing sites would be fine.
I would suggest buying a dedicated server.
It means you have it fully sircured and less prone to outages etc etc.

You are required to use a server-side programming language, which is most
likely to be PHP. Even if you tried, it still wouldn't work because
JavaScript doesn't have much in terms of using or accessing databases. You could also use Pirl and CGI.

In the early days of the web, Matt Wright developed a web forum
called WWWBoard using Perl scripts, which required no database,
no javascript, just HTML pages with CGI forms calling Perl
scripts. Posts are stored as separate pages with threading
information embedded in each, so no database is needed.

It still exists on Matt's Script Archive at
http://www.scriptarchive.com and although it's primitive by today's
standards, I continue to marvel at its elegance and simplicity.

Hello all, I have attempted to write my own forum using PHP and MySQL. It works, but the efficiency is far from ideal. It takes a long time to load e.g. the list with threads in a certain forum.
